While I’m on the subject of the Los Angeles Times, the newspaper is engaging in another bit of synergy with its Tribune-owned local TV station KTLA — this time about Hollywood. I’m told that LA Times chief film critic Kenny Turan is teaming up with KTLA Morning News entertainment reporter Sam Rubin for a half-hour television show based around the print version of “Sneaks”, the LA Times‘ four-times-a-year look at movies coming out. The show will be called Sneaks and produced four times a year with the first one airing September 7th. One past bit of successful synergy between the newspaper and KTLA was to promote LA Times columnist Steve Lopez’s series about Skid Row.
